j; "Don't look a gift horse In the mouth"
means not to Inquire too minutely Into the
iiilue of n gift or the motive which prompt
ed the giving, (a) Tho origin of the saying
is thought to bo tho Incident of thu presen
tation of tho hugo wooden horse by tlio
(ireekB to the Trojans during the sliga of
Troy Tho horse, which was tilled with
flreek soldiers, was used ob a tuso to effect
an entiunco Into tho city. I-aocoon, tcenl
lng dangor, warned nguiiist accepting the
gift, but In punishment ho and his son
wero slain by serpents (h) Another theory
Is that tho saying comes from the fact that
ono can approximate the age, and Ihvrefure
the worth of " horse by examining Its
'tunning the Gantlet
ii 13. "Running the gantlet" means to
be hemmed In on all sides by aiuwllants,
with slim prospects of esoapo without In
jury. The saying came into use from thu
prJctlco of sailors, who punished offenders
by making them run between two files of
men each of whom struck the victim with
u ga'untlet or rope's end us he passed. The
American Indians used It as a means of
punishment; but here the victim rarely
useuped with his life, for tomahawks and
clubs were used, '(lantlel" evidently la
a corruption, of "gantlope." which means to
pass between iw J11" ' soldiers.

has been able to overcome the dllUoulty by
special process and (he use of certain vege
table oils or other harmless Ingredients.
Let mo lay this fac( before all fair
minded readers, particularly your corre
spondent: Creamery butter Is colored with
a certain coloring matter during the greater
part of the year, and It Is this self-same
dye which when put Into oleomargarine
raises the revenue tax on same from one
fourth cent to ten cants per pound. No
greater proportion is necessary. If there
Is any Injury In Its use In oleomargarine
why, does creamery butter escape? To give
this answer we must dig deep Into the po
litical past, which Is not my purpose in this
It Is a sad fact that the prite of creamery
butter is presently at such a prohibitive
figure that the average working man can
not buy It) and I am not denying to the
creamery trade the necessity for its being
at (hut high figure; but I say that la fair
ness to the great army of consumers all
means should be adopted for having the
real truth about oleomargarine brought to
light and all legislation should be directed
with the view of having any unnecessary
taxes and restrictions removed. There Is a
State tax of $10" per annum and a rev
enue tax of $6 per annum on the dealer,
before he can sell even one pound of pure
wWte oXeonArgarlne, and a proportionately
iuw i VfBr be otn mU & eaim1
art. W Bglr $M t seijt m
taxation may ho obvious, but without going
any further will any ono dare to say It Is
A further fact to bo borne In mind Is this:
Oleomargarine Is manufactured from per
fectly pure, wholesome materials under the
very highest sanitary conditions, nnd overy
pound Is O. IC'd by n Dovcnimcnt Inspector.
Can any ono certify tho purity of the ma
jority of our creamery butter by tracing
It from tho cow to tho milk can, the open
dairy vessels or crocks nnd tho churns to
tho consumers, with never nn olllclal In
spection? 1 inn not now Interested In oleomnrgnrlno
nny moro than being compelled to uso It
almost exclusively. My chief reason In
taking part In this discussion In not so
much to defend you n gainst tho charges of
unfnlrness made by "Hminor Vernon" ns
to help a much abused but nevertheless
worthy cnuso In n desire to seo n sipinro
deal all around. DIOCiUNKS.

SHALL WOMEN VOTE?
To the Hilltor of the Evening Ledger;
Sho mends his clothes nnd cooks his meals,
From her their child has learned Its
Sho gives him courage when he feels
The heavy burden of his cares.
She makes his little Income Bervo
To keep their homo a cheerful place;
When fear deprives him of his nervo
Ho feels that hope utlll lights her face.
1I Boon would fall, without her old,
To keep their llttlo bark alloat,
But he Is very much afraid
To have her trusted with a vote.
